I saw it a few weeks ago and thought it was very entertaining… Oscar worthy? No, but definitely entertaining.

I saw this movie a couple weeks ago, and while it’s exactly as OP and PP’s have described – disturbing, raunchy, and extremely long – I actually didn’t mind it.  I’m a huge Leo fan, so that’s maybe why it wasn’t that bad for me.  I can definitely see though this movie not being every ones cup of tea.

@Billsgirl:  My Fiance were asking the same thing…the fact that it got nominated and SO many other goo movies got snubbed, absolutely appals me and confirms my ever-growing loss of faith in humanity, lol.

Fiance and I love funny movies, but neither one of us laughed once during this whole thing. I know Scorcese was trying to portray a few certain messages, it was just too much for me. It was boring and disgusting. We counted 8 people who got up and left, and those were just the ones we actually noticed.

I’ve yet to hear anyone say this movie didn’t have a storyline.. I guess you missed it.. being so disturbed the whole time.

It was a great movie, both Leo and Jonah gave excellent performances. I think the point of the movie was to showcase their debauchery.. the stock fraud played second fiddle because.. well, he barely served jail time for it.

@Billsgirl: Maybe you should look for something with a lower age rating.

Aw, we thought it was great. DiCaprio was fantastic, though I don’t think he’ll win the Oscar. I can name a dozen movies that feature male nudity, not sure why it’s so controversial in this movie?

I refuse to see it.  The man who it was based on had a cameo in it.  It’s one thing to tell his story; but quite another to give him screen time.  Talk about disgusting!!

… Did you not know what the story was before you went to see the movie?
